Tristan, so inbred and backward, a local girl marrying a Falklander and bringing him to live on the island was a cause for great celebration at the expanding of the gene pool.

Could have done a lot more if Protector had a Helicopter.
Still glass beads and mirrors are still popular barter goods there I believe.

I thought was because our new subs are fitted for, but not with, sonar!

Or a Matelot with a snorkle and a RA Torch blacknastied to the bow...

Two bangs with a bronze hammer = go left, three = go right and paniced, sustained banging followed by a dull, squishy thud means 'stop, stop, for fcuks sake stop!!!' and 'change shift'.
